Bowel frequency in healthy subjects

, : Bowel frequency in healthy subjects. Italian Journal of Gastroenterology 17(3): 133-135

The results of this study indicate that the range of bowel actions vary in different age groups and it would, therefore, be more practical to refer to different standards of normal bowel frequency according to age. In children between 2 mo.-3 yr, bowel frequency should be considered abnormal when < 6 evacuation or > 21 evacuations/week; in children between 3 and 10 yr when < 3 or > 14 evacuations/week; in adolescent and adult subjects when < 3 evacuations/week or > 21 evacuations/week; in subjects > 60 yr of age when < 3 evacuations/week or > 14 evacuations/wk.
